'The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year's goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.'

3. Nor Biden brand asthma or Clinton brand yellow belly disease

It hysterical how NOW lefty rails about Draft Dodgers after YOU voted one as POTUS in 1992 and 1996.

You loved you some coward then and berated 2 WW2 veterans including one hideously wounded in service in the Apennine Mountains of Italy, and a torpedo bomber pilot who survived being shot down over an island of Japanese Cannibals who feasted on the livers of captured Americans

Then you couldn't embrace a coward fast enough and you still worship him to this day

A Serial Rapist, Sexual Predator and Draft Dodger who went to moscow in 1969 to protest while US soldiers died in the mud of vietnam

6. You want to talk about swift boats? How about submariners?

Then there were those who opted for National Guard via their dad's influence, and barely showed up.

Both D & R have honorable veterans as well a scumbuckets.

Now remind me what pussy grabbing Trump said about Senator McCain's service? Don't talk to me about embracing a wind vane coward.

9. You democrats STILL embrace a coward who ran to another country to avoid service

Nothing Trump or Bush or even Cheney equals running away to another nation to avoid serving. Then going to the Soviet Union (Our enemy of the time) to protest while US soldiers were being killed by Soviet Advisors and weapons, and our POW's tortured by them and Cubans

8. I dare easily!


Here are the political leaders with military experience who have taken prominent positions on defense issues. They are:

Wesley Clark - Democrat.
Jimmy Carter - Democrat.
John Kerry - Democrat.
Bob Kerrey - Democrat (winner of medal of Honor)
Max Cleland - Democrat.
John Murtha - Democrat.
Jack Reed - Democrat.
Daniel Inouye - Democrat. (winner of Medal of Honor)
Jim Webb - Democrat.
Charles Rangel - Democrat.
Al Gore- Democrat

Why do so many members of the military who decide on continuing in public service join the Democratic Party? There are several answers to this, here are a few:

1) Forty percent of the military is made up of ethnic minorities. Most of those, as is also the case with most of the Caucasian members of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, come from the lower economic classes. These demographic groups have largely voted Democrat in the past and will continue to do so. When officers (the more likely to go into politics) live with their soldiers day in and day out, a certain empathy builds. It is unavoidable. Those officers begin to understand and respect the problems their soldiers and their families face or have faced on a day-to-day basis. Indeed, the primary reason that young men and women join the service is not their fetish for combat or killing but to satisfy the dire economic needs of their family.

2) The United States military is probably the most socialistic institution in the United States. Think about it. There is universal health care in the military (though we have seen how unconscionably horrific our medical attention has been to our soldiers in places like Walter Reed). Housing is available to all members of the military. Educationally, the children of the officers, even the Generals, go to a school with the children of the lowliest Private in the army.

The major institutions that produce our most elite officers come from a position of absolute meritoriousness as opposed to wealth or contacts. Right now Annapolis and West Point are two of the nation’s most difficult colleges to get into. Those two schools, as well as the Air Force Academy and the Coast Guard Academy, are blatantly transparent in who and how they admit because they are federally funded. The students who are accepted have to come from the highest academic stock. Were a qualified high school student to be be rejected in favor of somebody because of that person’s family’s wealth or political connections, it would create a gigantic scandal, given that it is Congressmen who nominate (though do not appoint) cadets and midshipmen.

Just for myself to be transparent myself, I graduated from West Point in 1984.

11. Wesley Clark - Democrat. Relieved of Command of SACEUR for lack of judgement almost getting us

into a shooting war with Russia. Forced to retire due to lack of judgement and Lack of Integrity.
https://www.losaltosonline.com/news/sections/news/216-latc-sections/community-archive/12701-J12066

Clark Actually ordered the British contingent of KFOR to use MILITARY FORCE to eject Russian paratroops from Pristina airfield in Kosovo in 1999.
General Sir Mike Jackson told Clark to go fuck himself, clark bitched about the brits not following his orders and Clark was relieved early by the Joint chiefs



Jimmy Carter Democrat- Tried to pull IS forces from South Korea, Tried to cut our forces size in Europe. Cancelled vital equipment and paid our joes so little US soldiers in West Germany had to beg the Germans for welfare for their wives and children.

John Kerry Democrat- While still a Active US navy Officer went to paris to directly negotiate with the North Vietnamese. Said he personally saw US soldiers behead Vietnamese to congress which was in fact a lie on his part

While a Senator went to Managua Nicaragua to directly negotiate with the Communists with Stolen Valor Democrat Tom Harkin who falsely claimed to fly combat mission over North Vietnam (He was a ferry pilot at Clark field Philippines)
?w=520&h=385





John Murtha Democrat- Called fellow US Marines cold blooded Murderers at Haditha before an investigation was even finished


Al Gore democrat - Only US soldier who did a 5 month tour of duty and when he asked to go home was sent. Every other US Soldier had to do 12 months incountry (Marines 13). he also had a personal bodyguard while an enlisted man (he was a SP/5 Non Leadership equivalent to a buck sergeant) to make sure he wasnt hurt


Here's Al Gore looking into the muzzle of his M16A1 (FUCKING serious safety violation and his rifle selector switch set to fire)

12. Cool Boonie hat, Al!



"A consistent Democrat – "I'm a Democrat first, last, and all the time", he said – in January 1941 he praised FDR's support for Great Britain and in an address at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Memorial Day of that year he attacked isolationists and said that veterans understood that "liberty and freedom are so very precious that you do not fight and win them once and stop." They are "prizes awarded only to those peoples who fight to win them and then keep fighting eternally to hold them!" At times he was blunt: "I think any man who talks against the interests of his own country ought to be arrested and put in jail, not excepting senators and colonels." Everyone knew that the colonel in question was Charles Lindbergh."
